Ms Kathleen Russell Tait

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Oldie


Ms Katherine Russell Tait, the daughter of Bertrand Russell, complained that a readers letter had contained an inaccurate and apparently unchecked anecdote about her behaviour as a school-child.


The complaint was resolved when the magazine published the following correction: Further to a readers letter on the subject of Bertrand Russell, we have been asked by Katharine Russell Tait to make clear her absolute denial that as a young girl she leant out of a window, spat at a new teacher at the school and shouted there is no God.

Report: 73
